@undershooter I would have this discussion with my pro in Wisconsin. He was very old school and wanted me in a Player's iron. He'd say, "You have the game." I'd reply, "It's not the game, it's the time. I don't have the time to bag a Player's iron."

 

@Kmaygolf stick around, hang on the forums, start some threads and your time will come!

Agreed. I actually had a mini panic attack after the euforia of being chosen wore off (Snell Get Sum balls), but it is totally worth it! You get to try out a great product, and you end up learning a ton about things you might not have thought would be part of the process. Feedback and validation are nice, too...😉

I don't think there's been a review I've wanted to do more than this one!  Congratulations to the "winners," looking forward to the results.  

 

If they play half as good as they look I may have to break the piggy bank!

Hmm... Lets see, who would a company rather give $1000 worth of a equipment to? Some rando who can't even bother to take 30 seconds and put up a profile pic/ be part of the community by occasionally posting or members who not only submit their own reviews and make contributions. Personally if its my money I'm never giving someone equipment who refers to a REVIEW OPPORTUNITY as a giveaway.

To expect to get chosen with 5 posts (all of which are in test applications) is about the most asinine, narcissistic thing I've ever scene.

You don't just get handed all this stuff and walk away (which you probably would, which is why you weren't picked). Now that we've been selected we have to do ACTUAL work and put these things through the wringer and do a write up about what we think of them.

Do you know how many testing opportunities I've put my name into? Take a guess because its a hell of alot more than 5. I never got selected to review anything through probably my first 15 requests and I was an actual participating member of the community. Did I take it personally? No. Hell I don't even submit my name anymore unless its something I really wanna test, purely bc I want to give others the chance to get to review something that may help their game.

 

You need to have an attitude check and come live in the real world. Put in the time/ make contributions and opportunities will present themselves.

Agreed. When I first joined, I signed up for every testing opportunity that came through, just to give everything a shot. I stopped that habit, started a few threads, and was lucky enough to be chosen to review the Snell Get Sum ball. Because of that opportunity, I'm pretty sure I've found a new ball.

 

In the future, I'll focus on only applying for the products I truly want to try and keep participating in the community, which has been a blast to be a part of. Even if I'm never chosen again, the input of my "fellow spies" has been more than worth it.

Congrats guys! These seem like game changers. Love the idea of stamping the loft on the club.

I'll be curious to see if these are really "game improvement" or not. They look beautiful! Have fun.

Congrats to the chosen testers. These look really interesting, so very much looking forward to what people think of them.

 

As someone who has been chosen to do a review, it certainly isn't a giveaway. I think the vast majority of testers put a significant amount of time, thought and effort into their reviews.  The range of reviewers is great and makes this site stand out from all others.

 

These irons would have been something I would have loved to review, but I would struggle to give the process the time it needs and deserves.
